For most of us, the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster is history. But the reality is its effects linger for thousands still living around the site, which will be contaminated for centuries to come.

Two decades ago, a program was started locally to help those in Belarus receive treatment, and now Hope for Chernobyl’s Child is continuing that mission in Renton.

[…] organizers say children now are sicker than ever from Chernobyl’s lasting effects.

Transcript Excerpts

  • Many have heart and digestive problems and they’ll be treated by doctors who donate their time
  • Now over the years the Hope for Chernobyl’s Child program has helped over 350 kids and organizers say they’re sicker now than ever and they’re still looking for more doctors to help provide care

    nuclear is poison, and there is no argument to refute that.

    Solar and wind and other innovative technology can supply power for mankind. Governments and engineers should rise to the occasion.

    There is nothing about wind and solar that is more challenging than nuclear reactors, the height of complexity and unsolved problems

  • Now over the years the Hope for Chernobyl’s Child program has helped over 350 kids

    thats the tip of the iceburg

    Chernobyl Children International annual airlift – Served 22,500 children since 1986

    Just one of a number of organisations around the globe that try to help the children living in effected areas.. what would the total be?

    Chernobyl and Fukushima effects…a nice article here

    The effects of
    low-dose radiation

    IN which they describe government obfuscation of data, a negative effect on animals including diseases other than cancer, correlations between Chernobyl and Fukushima, and the prospect of increasing ill effects over time

    Isn't it against the law to litter, threaten, hurt, kill someone.
    This is what Nuclear Power does, "it has been proven".
    Tell me again why it's legal to build and have these killing monster machines.

    Even though the lack of large-scale independent long-term studies does not permit a complete picture to be made of the current situation, a number of trends can be shown: a high mortality rate and an almost 100% morbidity rate can be observed among people, such as liquidators, who were exposed to high radiation levels. 25 years after the reactor catastrophe cancer and other diseases have emerged on a scale that, owing to the long latency period, might have appeared inconceivable immediately following the catastrophe.
    The number of non-cancerous diseases is far more dramatic than had ever before been imagined. “New” symptoms, such as the premature aging of liquidators, raise questions that research is still unable to answer.
    By 2050 thousands more cases of illnesses will be diagnosed that will have been caused by the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe. The delay between cause and noticeable physical reaction is insidious. Chernobyl is far from over.
    Particularly tragic is the fate of the thousands of children who were born dead or died in infancy, who were born with malformations and hereditary diseases, or who are forced to live with diseases they would not have developed under normal circumstances.

  • Jebus Jebus

    The genetic defects caused by Chernobyl will continue to trouble the world for a long time to come – most of the effects will not become apparent until the second or third generation.

    Even if the extent of the health effects is not yet clear, it can still be predicted that the suffering brought about by the nuclear disaster in Fukushima is, and will be, of a similar magnitude.

    There is no denying the truth as time plays out…

    Note on the unreliability of official data published
    by WHO and IAEA

    At the “Chernobyl Forum of the United Nations” organised in September 2005 by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the World Health Organisation, the presentation of the results of work on the effects of Chernobyl showed serious inconsistencies. For example: the press release of the WHO and IAEA stated that in the future, at most, 4,000 surplus fatalities due to cancer and leukaemia amongst the most severely affected groups of people might be expected. In the WHO report on which this was based however, the actual number of deaths is given as 8,930. These deaths were not mentioned in any newspaper articles. When one examines the source quoted in the WHO report, one arrives at a number between 10,000 and 25,000 additional fatalities due to cancer and leukaemia.

    Given this it can be rationally concluded that the official statements of the IAEA and the WHO have manipulated their own data. Their representation of the effects of Chernobyl has little to do with reality.

    • Jebus Jebus

      The Chernobyl Forum also does not take into account that even UNSCEAR has estimated that the collective dose (the usual measurement for radiation damage) for Europe outside the region of the former Soviet Union is higher than the corresponding data for the Chernobyl region. The collective dose from the catastrophe was distributed to 53% throughout Europe, 36% throughout the affected regions in the Soviet Union, 8% in Asia, 2% in Africa and 0.3% in America.

      S. Pflugbeil pointed out already in 2005 that there were discrepancies between press releases, the WHO report and the source quoted in it (Cardis et al.). Up until now neither the Chernobyl Forum, IAEA nor the WHO have deemed it necessary to let the public know that, on the basis of their own analysis, a two to five-fold higher number of deaths due to cancer and leukaemia are to be expected as the figures they have published.

      • Jebus Jebus

        Even in 2011 – some 5 years on – no official UN organisation has as yet corrected these figures. The latest UNSCEAR publication on the health effects of Chernobyl does not take into account any of the numerous results of research into the effects of Chernobyl from the three countries affected. Only one figure – that of 6,000 cases of thyroid cancer among children and juveniles, and leukaemia and cataracts in liquidators – was included in their recent information to the media. Thus, in 2011 the UNSCEAR committee declared: On the basis of studies carried out during the last 20 years, as well as of previous UNSCEAR reports, UNSCEAR has come to the conclusion that the large majority of the population has no reason to fear that serious health risks will arise from the Chernobyl accident. The only exception applies to those exposed to radioiodine during childhood or youth and to liquidators who were exposed to a high dose of radiation and therefore had to reckon with a higher radiation-induced risk.

        • Jebus Jebus

          Please read this study, it tells the truth that the UN knows, but doesn't want anyone to hear…

          • Trawling4Trolls

            “The liquidators”, said Burlakova, “have aged 10 to 15 years earlier than the rest of the population. The same effect can also be shown on animals and in their case one cannot speak of radiation angst or radiophobia.”

            Perhaps our priest of radiophilia, Redpill, can explain this cross-species 'conservation' of radiation-induced aging?

          • Populations which were particularly exposed to radiation by the Chernobyl catastrophe
            Clean-up workers (liquidators):
            830,000 (Yablokov 2010)

            Evacuees from the 30 km zone and other highly contaminated zones:
            350,400 (Yablokov, 2010)

            The population of the heavily irradiated zones in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine:
            8,300,000 (Yablokov, 2010)

            European population in zones with minor exposure to radiation:
            600,000,000 (Fairlie, 2007)

            Source; above link

            • Total number exposed to HEAVY RADIATION DOSES =

              drum roll, to honor the millions of dead….

              830,000 liquidators (almost 100% fatalities)
              350,400 evacuees (high mortality rate)
              8,300,000 Belarus, Ukraine, Russia
              9,480,400 victims either dead or suffering

              Plus 600 MILLION victims in Europe.. How many of these are unknowingly suffering from radiation caused diseases, cancers and genetic problems?

              Conservatively, maybe 10%…

              Add 9.5 million
              plus 60 million
              69.5 MILLION CASUALTIES either dead or suffering

              Now that is a REAL number, compared to the FAKE pablum put out by WHO, IAEA and all of the rest of the cover up artists.

          All the US Military and dependents that lived in Europe in that period, especially those in Germany, THOSE people's illnesses need to be counted. Those people rotated back to the USA to move around the USA to various military bases/housing. HOW many of those people, in the thousands, have been counted? If you were exposed to Chernobyl radiation in Europe from 1986 to ??, and have now discovered you have things like radiation caused thyroid cancer, you too are a victim of Chernobyl.

    Great links!

    My father occupied Japan after the bombs were dropped and he even got a medal!

    He died of stomach cancer in his early 70's. So many secrets and so many people have already died from this ongoing Nuclear Radiation Technology contamination..

    None of us are hearing the "truth", since the "truth" can be bought and sold just like any commodity these days.

  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

    Not one mention of "Nuclear Radiation Contamination" anywhere inside any of these reports?

    Why did we humans ban all above ground nuclear weapon testing?

    Was it because the fallout was good for biological life or bad for biological life?

    Might be a tough one for Redpill to comprehend.

    What does the chart based on the cancer curves going up after 1950 mean?

    We all started practicing bad lifestyles after 1950..yea that's the ticket!

    Invisible, odorless and tasteless and Radiation Contamination is now everywhere.

  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

    Talk about smoking crack and talking crack…..this is what Nuclear Radiation Contamination does!

    It's called BIO-ACCUMULATION and BIO-MAGNIFICATION. Your child will be sicker than you. Your grandchild will be sicker than your child. Your great-grandchild will be sicker than your grandchild. A person bearing a child may LOOK all right, but the recessive genes come to the fore MORE in successive generations.

    The absolute CRIMINALITY of defending the nuclear industry instead of teaching the public THIS.
